The Bristol Rainforest
Planting a rainforest one classroom at a time
We are a group of volunteers on a mission to put rainforest trees in classrooms all over Bristol. As well as raising trees we want to raise the ambitions, self-esteem and confidence of all of the children that learn under our trees in their classrooms.
We are working with school children, showing them how they can grow nutritious vegetables in their own school playgrounds.
In this way, we are helping to address the access to fresh vegetables and level up food disparities in or society.
Trees make us feel happier
Rainforest trees are really good at doing this, especially when we live closely with them. They are long-lived and need all the same environmental conditions as we do. We need light, water, air and warmth, just like them.
Ficus Benghalensis or the Banyan Tree
Trees connect us to the natural world and make us feel more at ease when we have them in our surroundings. By placing them in our living, working and learning spaces, they can help us do better at all of these activities.
If you would like to connect with our trees take a look at one of our programs below and see how.
